With all of this cold, no FREEZING, weather that we've been having over the past week I got the urge to ferret through my over flowing wool stash...
I decided to crochet a ripple style scarf for my little princess. It was super easy, no pattern required, and only took 2 nights curled up in front of the fire watching or should I say listening to the TV.... If you love to crochet and would like a copy of my instructions just leave me a comment saying so and I'll pop them up in my next post.
The little princess is wearing her new scarf today and just loves it... I have another style floating around in my head that I just might have to get started on tonight so stay tuned for that one... :)
On the lamb front, this FREEZING weather sure is knocking the little one's and their Mum's around. A few more were rescued and added to the 'sick pen' over the weekend. The little princess is doing a top job feeding this lamb and heaven forbid if it ever decides to step a foot out of line.... She's quick to start rousing if it does, don't you worry.... And then it's back to being a good little lamb again, just like it's supposed to..... LOL!!!
I found a couple of recipes that I'm dying to give a try over the weekend.... The first is for a orange (or lemon) and poppy seed cake and the second is for a tuna-loaf, kinda like meatloaf but with tuna... YUMMO!!! Are you trying any new recipe's over the next couple of days??? I'd love to hear about them if you are...
Have a great weekend and Take Care.... :)

  6. There's no better time to knit and bake than when it's cold...or freezing! (even better!). That is such a cute little scarf. Great pictures, too... especially the one with the hungry lamb and little girl in it!

  12. Oh it has been so cold the last week hasnt it. I dont know how people live in that weather all the time. I think this winter is the coldest we have had for quite a few years. By the way I emailed you my address for the contest and was wondering if you received it. If not I will try again at emailing you the details. Your daughter looks so cute feeding the little lamb with the bottle.
